The 34th annual IALD International Lighting Design Awards were recently held in Philadelphia, USA to celebrate the world’s best projects of 2016. Twenty-two projects from eight countries were on display.
Electrolight were thrilled to receive 2 awards of Merit for The Farm and Corrs Chambers Westgarth Perth. The judges had the following to say:
The Farm – This stunning piece of modern architecture located above Gerroa, Australia, appears to emerge from the rolling green hill. The lighting concept is based on integration, simplicity, precision and minimal elegance. Illumination flows organically from the built form, exuding a warm and seductive glow and imparting depth and composition. The lighting was described by one judge as “clean, contemporary, and welcoming.”
“This is architectural integration par excellence,” one judge wrote. “Beautiful forms and an incredible composition.”
Corrs Chambers Westgarth – is one of Australia’s premier boutique legal firms. This branch office in Perth was in need of an upgrade, and its small space required a major – but mindful – statement. The lighting design is an example of restraint and precision, with deep- seated integration that allows the lighting to exist as a dignified expression of the architecture.
